Mission

Blue Skies Riding Academy is an educational organization that provides affordable riding and equine care lessons for children, adults, day camps, group programs for schools, and community outreach programs. Blue Skies Riding Academy also provides sanctuary for unwanted and abandoned equines. Rideable horses are trained for mounted equestrian programs, while unrideable horses are used for equine care lessons and demonstrations.   Blue Skies is uniquely positioned as one of the only equine facilities in the metro Atlanta area to offer horsemanship opportunities to schools, after school programs, and community based organizations. We are committed to providing the children who particpate in our programs experiences which will empower and inspire them both now and in the future.
